The school year starts in August and you may have already started preparations, but what happens after the school day ends? Reports say that more than 65% of parents with minor children work full-time, leaving millions of children to return to an empty house or be on their own between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Known as the "critical hours," this is the time of day when young people are most likely to commit crimes or be victimized by it. What should you do as a parent? After-school programming might be the solution. Darlene Sowell, president and CEO of Neighborhood Houses, the largest provider of after-school programming at no cost in the St. Louis Public Schools, is here with us now. - - Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/STLTV Friend us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/STLTV Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/STLTVChannel Visit our website: http://stltv.net
